    Auto paint will chip as well. Properly done PC is stronger and can take more abuse than Auto paint.

    I went with Auto paint on my BOP because I couldn't find the nice candy purple I was looking for in PC. If you can get the color you want in PC I would do that every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    I'll add one last thing for you.

    Auto is much easier to remove if you change your mind. Proper powder coat is a PITA to remove unless you are a pro.

    Just keep that in mind if you think you may change things up. I'll still say, if PC has the color you want go that way.

    Quoted from pinlawyer:

    Where does one get automotive paint?

    Depends.

    Rattle can - any auto parts store
    2 part - order it or find a local store. Some auto parts stores carry it but most don't. Auto body shops will paint for you too.
